Plot Summary
After his divorce, Bill Hooper (Anthony Hopkins) is a shattered man; the biggest blow was losing custody of his son. So when he meets Roger (Jim Broadbent), a man whose wife has also left him and taken their son, Bill takes up Roger's cause as his own -- agreeing to pay all his legal fees. Yet, as the custody battle heats up, Bill makes gestures to reconnect with his ex-wife, Emmy (Harriet Walter), that show that their divorce -- and Bill's anger -- may be more complex than they appear.
